I'll go off the rails and say... Maytag.
Their quality definitely isn't where it used to be, but after comparing a half dozen dishwashers three years ago - including Miele and Bosch - I went for the Maytag. It's as quiet as the Bosch dishwashers here at the office, does a superior job cleaning, and felt better to use (racks *especially*). I did get a higher-end model with a macerator to avoid clogs with food - that was a deal-cinching feature that at the time I could not find with many others. IIRC I bought it from us-appliance and it was pretty cheap... $600?
The thing I have found after years of owning Maytag appliances is that they're all fixable, easily. The internet abounds with repair info, you can buy parts from all sorts of places. When a shorted power line nuked my clothes washer with 240v I thought I was hosed, but 30 minutes on Google and $140 to Sears got me a new control module which I installed in about an hour. Although I'd like appliances to just work & last, I don't think that's realistic these days, so repairability factors in highly to my purchase decision. :)
So, nothing against Bosch whatsoever... I went down a different road and have no regrets. :)
